 As  far  as  i  know  ,  black  spots  are  becuase  of  stress  "peppering".  This  can  go  away  if  once  they  settle  in  your  tank  ,  water  changes  will  help  u  for  sure  
 
 Nothing  to  worry  ..

 By  BP,  I  assume  you  mean  to  say  Blood  Pigeons  or  Pigeon  Bloods.  Peppering  is  common  with  any  any  pigeon  genes  in  discus.  It  is  visible  when  your  fish  is  stressed.  Stress  could  be  due  to  darker  background,  bullying,  sickness  etc.
 
 Increase  aeration  for  your  tank  by  adding  an  extra  air-stone  or  sponge  filter  to  tackle  breathing  problem.  Buying  discus  from  LFS  is  not  a  good  practice  as  possibility  of  your  discus  suffering  from  Flukes  cannot  be  ruled  out.  Always  buy  your  discus  from  good  breeder.
 
 It  would  be  great  if  you  can  post  pictures  of  your  discus  tank  so  that  improvements  can  be  suggested.
 Welcome  to  IAH  &  post  your  brief  introduction  in  this  thread  --->  Self  Introduction
 Have  a  great  time  here.  Smile

its  breathing  heavy,but  not  gasping  on  the  surface  and  eating  well......so  is  it  a  gill  fluke????                

 
 Discus  also  breaths  heavily  when  ,
 
 1)There  is  insufficient  ¬†dissolved  oxygen  in  water  .
 2)  Increase  in  Ammonia  level  in  water  .
 3)  Increase  in  Chlorine  in  water.
 4)  During  feeding  .
 5)  When  become  agressive  .
 
 
 As  along  as  they  are  eating  well  there  is  nothing  to  worry  .  
 
 Action  needed  ,1)Don't  overfeed  .
 2)  Do  good  Water  Change  daily  .
 3)  Keep  good  aeration  in  tank  .
 4)  Don't  feed  Tubiflex  or  Blood  worms  .
 
 
 Thanks
